Drew Barrymore Is Back as Josie Grossie from ‘Never Been Kissed’!
"Drew Barrymore Show"
More than 20 years after “Never Been Kissed” hit theaters, Josie Grossie is back!
Drew Barrymore just reprised the role for her talk show, complete with her pink prom dress, side ponytail, and braces.
In the video, Josie Gellar, an aspiring journalist, joins the Drew's News segment but struggles with how much has changed since the 1980s.
Josie was bullied in “Never Been Kissed,” and, after learning about the Internet for the first time, she asks whether people still call her “Josie Grossie.”
Drew tells her, “Yes, they most definitely do, but the good news is 'Josie Grossie' is like a merit badge that you can wear really proudly… A lot of people actually see themselves in you and we can all get in touch with our inner Josies.”
“I guess that's pretty special,” Gellar says.
